Students are at the core of everything the Minnesota State High School League does, and the League honors them with several awards and recognition programs.
The ExCEL and Triple ‘A’ awards celebrate juniors and seniors for their work in the classroom, participation in athletics and fine arts, leadership skills, and connection to their communities. The Spotlight on Scholarship program also recognizes individuals and teams for their academic achievements.
The League has also recently created two social media campaigns - the Sportsmanship Challenge and Most Valuable Teammate (MVT). The Most Valuable Teammate (MVT) celebrates the characteristics of leadership, respect, and reliability, while the Sportsmanship Challenge recognizes great acts of sportsmanship across all high school activities.
